XF 1.5 Some questions on the Xenforo permission system


I'm not sure what the following Xenforo permission actually means and I can't find an explanation in the manual. Can someone explain please? I'm not sure what I should set it to.

If you want a member's posts to be moderated, so they have to be approved before being visible, set that permission to Not Set (No), unless they are also in another user group with it set to Allow, in which case set it to Never.

The example promotion here explains how it is used: https://xenforo.com/help/user-group-promotions/
